    It is raleway: http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/Raleway
    (I checked the source code of the page).
    Raleway is a lovely clear font, isn't it?!

    Esther...what do you mean you checked the source code? How do you do that because there are many, many fonts I would love to have but don't know the name of them...TIA

    If you right click on the page, you have the option of View Page Source.

    Esther, I'm not sure how you navigate through all that code to find the font. When I clicked into the recipe part, I only saw Light Typewriter because it caught my eye. (I went back and clicked on the first image of the actual snickerdoodles and saw Raleway.) But still, is there any way to easily search the code?

    Um, well, having done some web programming helps! I don't know of any simple way to tell. There probably is. But what I did was download the page, open it in a web editor (I used Expression Web) to view the source code, and checked the css properties of that part of the page.
    Sometimes a page is written in very simple html and you can find out by right clicking - choose View Page Source and then search for "font-family" somewhere eg <font-family:raleway;> means the raleway font is used.
    But often the font-family information is in a separate little file called a Cascading Style Sheet (css). In the style sheet it said:
    body,h1,h2,h2 a,h2 a:visited,h3,h4,h5,h6,p,select,textarea
    {
    color:#777;
    font-family:Raleway,sans-serif;
    font-size:16px;
    line-height:1.5625;
    text-decoration:none;
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }
    Here endeth the lesson on HTML and stylesheets!

    Thank you Esther!!!
    And now that I know about source codes, from now on I can right click and at least MAYBE pick up some clues as to the fonts I'm looking for!!
    I'm hoping to try that recipe sometime this week. I will let you know how they turn out!

    Whew, You learn something new everyday. Funny thing is, my hubby was JUST trying to teach me about viewing source code, and I spaced out. Relate it to fonts, and I might pay attention

    Are you talking about where it says "Brown Butter Salted (caramel in script) Snickerdoodles"?? I am thinking even the source code might not answer that question since that is probably a JPG of the cookie picture with the text as a part of it.

    Well, I can't resist a puzzle!! I took the image and submitted it to http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ and the best it could come up with was ITC Avant Garde Std Xlt (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/adobe/i...de-gothic/xlt/) which looks EXACTLY the same except that it is missing the serifs.
    So I have no idea.

    Haha Bailey! I space out too for anything that's complicated but not if it involves anything related to digital scrapbooking!

    Maybe the answer is to ask Alyssa directly. (the recipe critic) She uses a combo of texts on almost all her images but not all the same. Just one caveat....waaay too many of her desserts look incredible.

    I haven't been able to find the snickerdoodle font, but did a search for ultra thin slab serif fonts and found a few similar ones:

    http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/josefin-slab
    the e's and k's are different

    http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/nixie-one
    this is not as round

    Those are pretty close, Terese. Thanks. Of course I'm too cheap and only download free fonts . . . although I do "donate to author" for some of them on dafont.

    I think what I love is the "half sarif" on those clean curves. It's like Archer, but without the dots. Archer is my fave, but, again, I'm too cheap to buy it. sigh.

    I don't pay for fonts either, Kelly. It's not likely that the "snickerdoodle" font is free either, but I'm getting a little intense about finding it. Good thing it's slow at work today.

    lol Terese. I made myself WALK AWAY after about an hour. :O)

    Hi Kelly, I don't know if you already have this font, but on the outside chance that you're interested (and for anyone else that likes Archer) I found this:
    Enjoy St. Marie…Archer’s step sister for FREE.
    Here is the link to check it out further:

    I've picked up a few new (to me) fonts from here so far. Happy fonting.
